About me

Feeling overwhelmed and preoccupied by your thoughts? Feel like you just need a bit of space in your head to think clearly and feel less worried?  It may really help you to talk through your thoughts with someone, who can really listen and hear what you are saying.

As well as counselling in a room, I also offer walking counselling, in beautiful natural surroundings where the healing power of talking in nature can help you to reflect on your feelings and clarify them. When you walk, you have time and space to process your emotions, reflect on your feelings and listen to your inner voice, allowing you to be honest with yourself. It's often easier to talk about difficult issues while walking outside.

Having originally trained and worked as a mental health nurse in the NHS, I went on to train in Person-centered counselling. I discovered that by moving the focus away from illness and towards self-awareness, self-understanding and self-acceptance, clients are empowered to make the changes they are seeking.  I have a particular interest in mindfulness meditation.

Where do the sessions take place?

I am available for counselling in Cirencester, Cheltenham, Nailsworth, Stroud and Gloucester.  If you are interested in walking counselling, I usually hold the first meeting indoors so that we have a chance to discuss any concerns you have about counselling outdoors.

All or some of your counselling sessions can stay indoors if you prefer it that way.

What happens next?

If you have any questions or would like to book a session, please send me an email or phone me on 01453 492290 and leave a message if there is no answer. You can also have a look at my website.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in Person Centred Counselling and my experience has included working with people who have suffered anxiety, depression, severe trauma such as loss, separation, sexual violence, abuse, bereavement, fear of loss of life.

I have also studied Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and I practice mindfulness meditation daily.

I previously worked as a Registered Mental Health Nurse in the NHS with people suffering from anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, dementia and people in crisis.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and am fully insured.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also have experience in working with people suffering with

  • family issues
  • grief
  • suicide
  • anger issues
  • people seeking refuge


I am offering 3 options of session lengths:

​60 minutes - £45

90 minutes - £65

120 minutes - £85

During a counselling session, difficult feelings may arise. I feel it is important to end each session feeling emotionally fit to go about the rest of your day. If you would like, I offer a variety of grounding and relaxation techniques as an option which help you to go away from each session feeling safe and held. This allows you to re-calibrate in the new found space you have created in your life. These techniques take a few minutes which is why I offer a minimum of 60 minutes for each counselling session rather than the usual 50 minutes. I feel it is important to take our time and not feel rushed.
